RIP Fantasy Legend Frank Frazetta





Frank Frazetta died on the 10th May, and I for one am one of the millions who were saddened to hear this news. Like many, my childhood was heavily influenced by his art... on fantasy-genre book and comic covers, his artwork provided inspiration (and for some: titillation) to many my age. Whether you liked his work or not, it was always memorable... and often promised much more than the book content oft delivered.


If you want to find out more about the man and his art, here are some links to sites where you can start:

And just to illustrate how popular his work was, here's a piece of his that sold for $1million:

RIP Frank... you'll be sadly missed but not forgotten
